McDonald's Sued Again For Coffee Burns
Mirroring the famous 1994 lawsuit, an LA woman is suing McDonald's for burns she says she sustained from hot coffee with an improperly placed lid.By Laura Heck | January 9, 2014
Some just don't like it hot. Once again, scorching hot coffee could land McDonald's in, well, hot water.
The Los Angeles Times reports an LA woman named Paulette Carr is suing the fast-food chain for injuries she says she sustained in the drive-through in January 2012. The suit says, "The lid for the hot coffee was negligently, carelessly and improperly placed on the coffee cup … resulting in the lid coming off the top of the coffee at the window, causing the hot coffee to spill onto the plaintiff."
The filed suit, however, doesn't go into much detail about her injuries or the amount she could be suing for.
